Nerd: a person who behaves awkwardly around other people and usually has unstylish clothes, hair, etc. A person who is very interested in technical subjects, computers, etc. Source: merriam-webster.com
It used to be a bad thing to be called a nerd. Now, we nerds wear our Nerdism with pride. Like a big, shiny medal. Being a nerdy mom is no different than being a nerd. Instead of nerding solo, we need with our kids, minions. Instead of Peppa Pig to soothe our whiny brood we bust out the Dr. Who. We don’t collect Tupperware, we collect Funko Pops. We don’t micro-mange, we ” Wibbly Wobbly, Time Wimey “. We dream of Dr’s and time machines , wizards and wands, Jack and Sally’s. We never truly grow up, that would be boring. We do adult, and mom, successfully. Our inner nerd is always peeking over our shoulder. We get excited when our kid(s) want to be the fourth and tenth Dr’s ( they are my favorites ). When instead of the normal girly themed Birthday our daughter asks for a Ghost Hunter party. We do the Time warp, slay the dragons, stir the cauldron, and catch the train to Hogwarts ( 9 3/4 ). We Comic Con, cosplay and LARP.
We are the dreamers and free thinkers. The super fans, and fanatics. We cry when a loved character dies, and vow revenge when a wrong us done. Without us the world would be such a boring place. No little talking mice or teapots. No fire breathing dragons or stone men. No time machine traveling doctors. No booger flavored jelly beans or quidditch. Now that’s not a world that I would want to live in. Long live the nerd!!!!
